Phindy's Challenge - Christmas

Hi and welcome to another challenge at Phindy's! It's Jingle Bells all the way today there!

And let me introduce to one of my favorite Phindy images - she sure knows how to draw a cool polar bear!! And the whole picture has a wonderful, real Christmassy feeling of goodwill and magic.

The colouring is done with Copic markers and then glittered. With a lot of different glitters. Happily humming. Yeah.

The snowflakes are all different punches and dies, some glittered, some heat embossed with glittery embossing powder. Ribbons are from my stash.

Vellum with flocked snowflakes is from Making Memories and one of papers from SEI, another one was a random find from my desk.

Polar bear: W5/3/1/00, B0000, E53/51/50, 0
Girl: C3/1/00, 0, E0000/000/00/01/
Wreath: YG99/95/97/03, R27/24/21
Snow: C05/03/01/00
Sky: B97/95/93/91/00, Y0000/00/02/35
